    Which Suspension

    Putting heavy duty springs in my tdi was one of the worst things I ever did. Makes the ride too harsh from now on I'll always go standard if I ever come to have to change them
  2. Hi all I'm installing electric windows into my puma... all the hard work is done. Im at the point now where all my wiring is at the fuse board. I have one of those piggy back fuses to go in to give me my ignition live. I was going to just bolt the negative to earth but not sure if this is the best. Any advice on if this is how to do it or if you'd run a negative from the battery up to connect Cheers Tom
  3. It would need to be a puma 90 hardtop chassis plate if anybody could help who has one
  4. Cheers for the help so far I've managed to find some perfect ones in eBay for a fraction of the price only problem is I don't know the weight values etc that go in them. Would anybody be willing to send a pic of their plate (with your chassis number covered of course) just to show how it is laid out. I'm also struggling with the colour code. My car was originally a lovely light blue but the theifs rollered it red. I've now had it painted corris grey would I be better putting the old paint code or the new paint code Cheers for any help in advance
  5. I've also realised that the window plate is missing too and can't find any of them on eBay or anything. anybody ever sourced one of those outside of lr main dealers as that is criminal for a metal plate 200 quid
  6. my god i called a main dealer and been quoted £200 for it. surely thats not correct
  7. My car is a stolen recovery and the thiefs removed it
  8. Hi all I'm after a chassis vin or frame plate for my puma. The one under the bonnet. Does anybody know where I can get one. I can only fine older style ones on eBay nothing that looks like a puma one although I wouldn't know as nothing to compare to. Cheers for help in advance Tom

    Alpine window diy

    Hi I've decided to install alpine windows into my 90 van. I've made the cut using a template and the hole is bang on to the template. I'm having difficulty getting the window to sit right in the seal. The hole where the bead strip goes seems very tight. My thoughts are to file the hole larger and keep trying to fit it but I don't want to go too big. Anybody done this before got any advice or help? Cheers Tom

    90 solid rear side windows and trim

    thanks for the reply. you don't happen to know the correct dimensions for a window. hopefully they've done a good job if so!
  14. hi all i have recently picked up a 2011 puma 90. i suspect somebody has either cut their own windows in or used older ones as these side windows are not the sliding type i am used to seeing. i think i will stay with the solid one piece as it doesn't bother me enough to change it but i was wondering if anybody has any experience fitting the interior trim to this style of rear window and if it fits ok?
